What is Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric Dentistry is one of the specialized branches of dentistry that is dedicated to the oral health of children. A pediatric dentist is qualified to diagnose and treat conditions related to a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth. Children attain their first set of teeth for six to seven months, but by the ages of six and seven years, they begin to lose their first set of teeth and are replaced by the permanent ones. The American Association of Pediatrics advises parents to visit their child to the dentist by the age of seven as proper dental care would help their children achieve a beautiful smile.

As a published author of, A Bug Named Yuk — a children’s book about dental health — Dr. Sadek has a way of connecting with children and making them feel comfortable during their visits to the dental office. Dr. Sadek treats children as smart little people who are capable of making the right decision once they get educated about dental health. He passionately believes that with age-appropriate communication and changing the children’s emotional state from fear to excitement before teaching them about their teeth, even the youngest of patients will choose to have their teeth fixed. He gains so much trust with the children that he rarely uses injections/anesthetics and instead only uses nitrous oxide, increasing the safety and comfort of treatment.
